What better way to start the New Year than with a fresh-looking calendar? Although designed to organize time, the wall calendar in our household has become a way for my husband and me to dialogue. And though we both also keep digital calendars, we rely on our wall calendar as a crucial in-full-view reminder of our daily events, commitments, and aspirations.
